The Mighty tiny Quyen at Salon 808
This year, Aunty stopped coloring her hair (though there is Aunty’s exciting coloring trick) and didn’t go to get her hair cut for over a year. In recent photos, Aunty looked really old, which, however, had some advantage of getting senior discounts without being asked…
One day, out of the blue, best pal Patricia mentioned how much she loved her hairdresser Quyen (pronounced Quin) at Salon 808. Maybe she mentioned it because Aunty looked “haddit”. Maybe if you saw Aunty recently with her white rooted hair pulled into a scraggly ponytail you might think the same. Haddit.
NObody should look haddit, and every woman should wear lipstick and nice undies, in Aunty’s opinion.
So Aunty went to see Quyen at Salon 808 and got the BEST haircut in her life! Great service, nice hairwash, precision cutting and styling that still looks great today!
Aunty now feels like a million bucks. The cost for the haircut was $45, plus tip. The cost for going from haddit to not haddit – priceless.
Salon 808 is located by Shirokiya/Macy’s top floor across the parking lot in Ala Moana. Appointments by phone (808) 942-7799.
Update: Aunty doesn’t go to Quyen anymore and instead goes to a beauty/barber shop that is much closer to Aunty and wash/cut/styles are only $35. Quyen is still a top stylist, in Aunty’s book, but it was time for a change.
